Actress and singer Billie Piper is expecting a baby boy, with her husband Laurence Fox, according to the UK's Sun newspaper. They already have a son together, three year-old Winston and after announcing the pregnancy in October last year (2011), they have now revealed the gender of their second child, who is due in April this year.
Billie Piper lives in Easebourne, West Sussex, where she married Laurence Fox in 2007. She gave birth to their first child by caesarean section - following complications - in October 2008. Piper's marriage to Fox is her second; in 2001, she married the TV presenter and radio DJ Chris Evans, amidst much commentary in the media, owing to their sixteen year age gap. Piper and Evans separated in 2004 but remain friends. She met Laurence Fox in 2006, when they performed together in the stage play Treats.
In 2012, Piper will appear in a five-episode TV drama for the Bbc entitled Love Life. The series will also star David Tennant, Vicky McClure, David Morrissey and Jane Horrocks. Filming for the show began in Margate, in 2011. Joining Piper in pregnancy-related announcements, Sienna Miller and Peaches Geldof have both also announced to the press in recent days that they are pregnant.
